Hi all, I'm a long time poker player who wants to get into another game at the casino. I'm trying to decide between BJ and VP, since both involve some level of skill and knowledge on how to play each game optimally. I'm willing to put in the time to learn the Basic Strategy of both games, though I'm not necessarily going to learn to be a card counter because 1) it seems more trouble than it's worth for a recreational player unless I use an A/5 counting system or something else fairly rudimentary, and 2) Seems there are a lot of stories/instances out there about counters getting backed off (or worse) playing BJ, something I just don't want to have to deal with if it ever came to that. I want to have fun while minimizing house edge/losses. Basically I want another game I can spend my time, and money, at while in the casino. But I want it to be something that I put some time and effort into learning and playing well as that is part of the enjoyment for me. Though it's not necessarily my goal in this, which would be better for comps? I'm comfortable betting between $25-100 on BJ and playing max credits for VP, though I'm not sure what machine/denomination is the best way to go. BTW I have read the sticky at the top of this page about VP, which is one of the reasons I'm considering getting into VP. Though it's fair to say at this point I know much more about BJ than VP. But, as I said, I'm willing to put in the time on simulators and studying to be a knowledgable player. What say you all? Any advice/comments are greatly appreciated.
